With my second grandchild due any day now, my very pregnant daughter asked for a cushion for the baby girls room. She asked for a H on the cushion (wonder what the name will be??)
I found a wonderful tutorial on Pinterest (dont you just love that site) from Quilted Hugs and Other Nonsense.
It was extremely easy to do, I simply cut out the shapes and using Steam-A-Seam, ironed them onto the spotted square. Then with a layer of batting behind, I raw edged all the shapes. I then cut away all the loose batting. This left just the shapes in batting.
Another full layer of batting behind, and I sewed around the outside of the shapes. This made them stand out but then I stippled all the cushion front. This REALLY made my applique POP right out.
A ruffle around the edge and a zippered backing and its finished.
Now all we need is the baby....
